“For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; it is he who will save us.”
The Lord’s rule is a part of His divine order and as Creator of all things His rule is just and righteous. He is the Ancient of Days and has served as law giver and judge from the beginning of time. He will continue to maintain His sovereign position until the end of time.
The God who oversees our actions, behaviors and motives in the beginning, sees them at the end. It’s frustrating and possibly frightening when medical reports get lost in the shuffle of transient doctors and a personal, medical history disappears into the archives only to leave a new doctor without the whole story of our health. God isn’t transient. He doesn’t move, or change. He doesn’t lose our information and our history doesn’t get lost in the shuffle. He knows us well! He knows the end from the beginning and will judge us accordingly! Our King, our Messiah our Ancient of Days will reign and will usher in a just world. He is our saving grace, our protection and our salvation. His Spirit will change a heart and one day will transform the world into a place of righteousness, justice and peace.
I think this is so important to grasp a hold of in light of our forgiveness, and /or our desire to retaliate and get even with sweet revenge. We so often think that we sit alone in our hurts and unfair dealings. As God knows our hearts, motives, and actions, we can be assured that He also knows the heart motives and actions of those who have offended, betrayed, spread rumors or lied about us. He doesn’t loose track of who does what, and why they do it? God is just and righteous. He will grant mercy and justice when and where it’s needed, as well as judge the unforgiving spirit of ourselves or another. This knowledge of the just God should take a burden off our shoulders. Our offender/s will not get off free under our Sovereign God’s rule. Then again, nor will we if we are to blame but live in denial.
Do the blues have you down? Stuff on the horizon needing to be faced and here you are just feeling a bit under the weather? A little fear filled and apprehensive? Yeah, it hits all of us at one time or another. In moments like these you have to hear Jesus say to you as He taught those listening in His great Sermon on the Mount, in Matthew 6: 31, 32b, 33, “So don’t worry about these things, saying ‘What shall we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?…Your heavenly Father already knows yours needs. “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.” That word ‘everything’ means all of it…even that stuffed baggage and that load of hurt. That pain! That brokenness!
So, Beautiful one, say it out loud and know that our Saviour who spoke to the multitude on the mountainside speaks personally into your heart this morning, yeah, even on this blue day, and when He says “Trust me” for all that stuff on the horizon, just do it! ❤

“Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’””.
Christ had just recently been baptized by John, when the Spirit Of God descended upon Him like a dove and a voice from Heaven identified Him as God’s Son. He was then led by the Spirit into the wilderness for an intense ministry preparation time. Oh, The craftiness of the enemy, to catch The Lord when He was weakened from hunger, to offer Him opportunities to use His status for self preservation in order to meet His physical needs, guarantee His protection and increase His political and economic power. To succumb to such an invitation would have totally ended the mission of the Kingdom of Heaven, the way of the cross and the forgiveness of sin. Christ knew that, and the enemy knew that he had met his match in Christ, as his lies and temptations were rebuked by Christ’s answers. Jesus remained faithful and true to His Heavenly Father and faithful to His purpose. Even though His way would be hostile it was God’s plan for reconciliation for a lost and dying world. Nothing could get in the way of God’s plan. Nothing could thwart it! Not even the evil one, try as he might to bring it to ruin.
How much do our selfish passions for self preservation and position, motivate us to sin? In our quest for selfish, safe keeping and personal comfort, we can miss the spiritual mark of God’s words. The words that bring true, lasting life into a weak, weary, sin sick soul.
So the day is up and running full tilt ahead and it’s left you stumbling in your tracks. Some of us aren’t sure if we’re in high gear or slow motion but somehow we just go with the flow and hope for the best because life does throw it’s challenges at us left right and center. Challenges so daunting that we scarcely know our own heart in the issues that continually left-hook us. David knew all too well the difficulties in life and Psalm 62 expresses confidence in the king and offers prayers for him. King David rests in his God despite powerful adversaries that push hard against him and still he remains undaunted. Yeah, he encourages himself and his people to see their human adversaries from God’s perspective ~ frail, fleeting and deceptive.
In 62: 3, 4 David’s enemies desire to take him down with cunning lies, yet, In spite of it all our Psalmist, King David, in Psalm 62: 5 -8 encourages himself and others to trust God and place their hope in Him.
Beautiful soul, when life throws it’s left hooks into the circle of your world, and hope fades, say boldy with King David in verse 5, “Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken. My victory and honor come from God alone. He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me.
Yes you, beautiful one, so tattered and wearied from stumbling in the pathway, Rest, just rest in God and wait quietly on Him. Step into His sweet peace and let Him carry you over the hurdles! After all, when He is on our side, who can be against us?
Romans 8: 31
“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
